Multicultural Weddings

Multicultural Wedding

Melbourne is a very multicultural city and I welcome clients from many diverse backgrounds.


Having lived in Sri Lanka and other parts of Asia I am familiar with Poruwa, Hindu, Buddhist and other marriage ceremonies.  Clients engage me to conduct the entire marriage ceremony for them incorporating some of their rituals and customs or, some clients request that I attend to the Commonwealth Government legal requirements at the ceremony whilst the actual ceremony is performed in accordance with their culture.


Spouse Visa letters.


A client living in Australia who wishes to assist their proposed spouse who lives overseas to obtain a Spouse Visa must:


Meet with me and complete the Notice of Intention to Marry form.(NOIM)


I will then provide a Spouse Visa Letter stating  that they have met with me and completed the NOIM.  This letter from me supports the client’s application for a spouse visa.


When the overseas spouse arrives in Australia they must meet with me, produce relevant documentation (passport or birth certificate…. + divorce/death papers if relevant)  and complete their section of the NOIM.


The marriage date is then set and the marriage must take place within 9 months of arrival in Australia.
